THIS FUNDRAISER IS STILL UNDER CONSTRUCTION & A COUPLE MORE DETAILS WILL BE ADDED LATER ON!
What is WAGTtB?
We Ain't Got Time to Bleed! An Action-Packed Art Zine is a silly idea which, with the help of several super talented illustrators from the lairs of the internet, slowly grew into a humongous art project & it's now looking to leave the digital world! It will be featuring full-color artwork & over fifty pages of all-action!
Many of us have a clear memory of at least one iconic action movie from the mid 70's / 80's / 90's. Some may find them ridiculous, some other may regard these movies as gems, either way, the action genre that sprouted in said decades marked a very unique & fun stage of filmmaking.
Heroes like Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone & Arnold Schwarzenegger were able to rise to stardom thanks to this genre that was slowly taking strength thanks to epic badasses like Charles Bronson & Chuck Norris.
To have a proper understanding of the influence of this genre in the industry of filmmaking might require a deeper dive, but there's no doubt all of these movies needed to be commemorated in a way.
That's where WAGTtB! kicks in. Within its pages, you will find over fifty tributes to a number of iconic movie titles ranging mostly from action to sci-fi & a wee bit of fantasy. Some of the artists included in this project are:
- Charles Huettner
- Isaac Lenkiewicz
- Jen Lee
- Nick Alston
- Stephen Maurice Graham
- Eva Cabrera
- Arthur Asa
- Trevor Henderson
- Max Capacity
- Jon Boam
- Mikkel Sommer
- Alex Cline
- Andreas Schuster
- Ben Ommundson
- Tom Hunter
- Jimmy Giegerich
- Thomas Wellmann
- Max Fiedler
- Afonso Ferreira
- Pierre Ferrero
- Beto Garza
- John DeLucca
And many more! So, are you bad enough dude/dudette to help us bring this project to reality?
Here's a bit of extra info in regards to the incentives. Please note I'm still updating this section with photos of the goodies!
